Child Benefit Payments
#1
Ok, I've completely tried to do the right thing financially since my ex and I split, always paid what we agreed, split school uniform expenses etc. As I've posted on other threads, my ex is terminally ill and our children now live with me. Since this point I've never asked for anything, and she has continued to claim child benefit as her mother claimed they needed it to feed the kids when they go to stay. I've let this go now for 6 months, but after recent events I'm getting frustrated that I am paying for literally everything and not even being allowed to claim the child benefit. To top it off, last weekend while my daughter's were there they had a sandwich each and a bowl of soup, not exactly an expensive diet. How should I approach me taking over the child benefit claim?

Just put in what they will call a Rival Claim, and evidance the fact you exceed 50% of the nights.

You should look at http://www.entitledto.co.uk as once you get Child Beneift, you might also get Tax Credits and Housing Benefit/Council Tax Reduction or Universal Credit.

Do not delay in claiming anything it flags up. It will not go into payment until you get Child Benefit, but it will only backdate to the date you claim from.
Posts made by me are my opinion and any factual information should be checked out. If you do not have a Solicitor, often your local CAB can get you some initial advice.
